The Brief: As 2020 is shaping up to be an epically awful year, memes suggest that June may be even more disastrous than preceding months.
June 2020 memes have a pessimistic outlook for the upcoming month. With Australian wildfires, international conflict, a global pandemic, murder hornets, uprisings against police violence, and more, 2020 continues to resemble an apocalypse movie.
In a similar vein to the my plans vs. 2020 memes, these June memes note how this year has been filled with relentless misfortune, difficulty, and tragedy. Although these memes don’t express much hope for the future, they serve as comic relief, which can be an important coping mechanism.
And now we’re living the prequel to Planet of The Apes. 2020 just keeps on giving. https://t.co/UFSCmiUUuw
